Champions

The hard-fought trophy has a new home.
Saturday afternoon after the final whistle had been blown, the North American Martyrs emerged from the pitch as the 2012 Clericus Cup champions. For the first time since the inception of this unique tournament the NAC Martyrs have won.

In a resounding victory the NAC defeated the Pontifical Gregorian University 3-0.

The Clericus Cup is an annual soccer tournament of the various seminarians and priests of studying in Rome sponsored by the Italian Bishops Conference and the Pontifical Council for Culture.

I'm pretty bummed because I missed the game because I traveled this weekend (more on that later).

Let's Go Martyrs!!!
